A brilliant, sun-filled day over the Rio Grande Bosque and Sandia Mountains of New Mexico.

Crystalline Rio


While setting up for sunset photography on the Rio Grande, I decided to try a shot of the mountain and river in bright daylight. I climbed down the steep riverbank, grabbed a very stout root with one hand, then held my camera with the other to get this shot close to the water. I'm thankful I kept the camera on the dry side. I love the brilliant blue skies, the reflection in the river, and the cotton candy clouds over the mountain and fall foliage.

ChromaLuxe™ Metal Prints

ChromaLuxe™ Metal Prints

ChromaLuxe™ HD metal prints are a visually stunning way to display your art. Unlike lower-quality metal prints, ChromaLuxe™ HD prints are made using a process of heat infusion, pressure, and time to permanently sublimate inks into the metal. This requires more time and precision, and hence costs more to produce. HD metal prints offer unparalleled reproduction of details, vibrant colors, and durability. HD Metal Prints are also surprisingly light and easy to hang with the included cleat and level. Options include matte or gloss finish; if you expect to hang your image near a bright window, consider matte for reduced glare. Mount options include a flush silver or black side, as well as a recessed aluminum float mount (floating 3/4" off the wall). Frames are available; please contact us for a quote if you are interested in framing.

Please allow three weeks for production and delivery.
